On the hillside, just past Above Us Only Sky and almost hidden in the trees at the far western end of Serendipity, you’ll find Cloud 9’s well-designed and attractive chalets.

The sturdy wooden bungalows are built atop high stilts on the hillside and afford excellent ocean views from comfy balconies slung with hammocks. The interiors are well-maintained in a rustic style with plenty of varnished wood and straw roofs but broad French doors keep them light and airy. They are ensuite with hot showers and there’s a welcome mosquito net for each bed but note that rooms do lack air-con or fridges. They should stay cool with the help of sea breezes but on a still day in April, things could get sticky.

The bar and restaurant area is very classy with plenty more varnished wood creating a sort of captain’s cabin effect where you’d almost expect the barman to be wearing an eye patch and tricorn hat although the new owners are in fact a young, completely parrot-less, Russian couple. They’re new here and we’d hazard a guess new to the game so quite how things pan out remains to be seen. They have inherited a great spot for a drink or a bite and fine weather loungers are set out on a series of low terraces stepping down to the sea.

If you could transport the whole caboodle to an off-shore island it would be an absolute winner but as it is Cloud 9 does suffer Serendipity’s default drawbacks of there being nowhere for a swim and night-time noise pollution from across the bay.

Multiple lazing points.

A final warning about the tempting trail leading through the trees and rocks past the resort; there have been incidents of robbery so don’t go on your own and avoid taking valuables.
